Ministry’s Al Jourgensen Enters Rehab for Alcohol Abuse With .33 Blood Alcohol Level
As expected, Al Jourgensen entered rehab for alcohol abuse yesterday (Feb. 3). But what was unexpected was that he entered rehab with a .33 blood-alcohol level! On his personal Facebook page, the Ministry mastermind shared a slew of colorful posts the day before his stint in rehab began, tackling subjects such as Philip Seymour Hoffman's death, the Super Bowl, the Puppy Bowl, the Kitten Bowl + more.
Uncle Al has struggled with substance abuse for the great majority of his career. Jourgensen kicked hard drugs a while ago, but he hasn't been able to give up alcohol just yet. A few weeks ago, Jourgensen revealed that he'd be checking into rehab, but was going to wait a bit so he could "get s--tfaced watching the Super Bowl on the 2nd." Jourgensen did just that (although he ended up watching the Kitten Bowl instead), and managed to check into rehab with a 0.33 blood alcohol level. For those unfamiliar with the numbers, 0.33 is over four-times the legal limit to drive and is considered to be potentially fatal.
On Super Bowl day, Jourgensen posted a bunch of Facebook updates, which include:
Finally, Al's Facebook page was taken over by the Ministry's musician's wife, Angie. She posted about her husband's trip to rehab and his current state:
Good luck, Al! We hope to hear from you again in about 30 days!
